Blog Tour Review + Giveaway ~ Rekindled by C.J. McKella

eARC received via the tour company in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: May 9th 2016

Publisher: Self-published



When I left, I never planned on looking back. 
Walking away from the only boy I’d ever loved, 
I thought I was making the right decision. 
For me.
For us.
I was wrong.
Now I’m back, and the past is too much.
Tate Corbin is no longer the sweet boy next door, 
But rather a man who hates me. 


When she left, she took a piece of me.
A piece that had always belonged to her, and I knew—
I knew I’d never get over losing her, never get through the pain alone. 
But I moved on—never thought I’d care again, 
About her.
About us. 
I was wrong.
Now, Callie Winters is back
And I can’t let go, I can’t step away. 

Now only one question remains: 
Will our love be rekindled? Or will it go down in flames?

My Opinion

This is another first-time read by an author for me. I will admit I basically signed up because of the gorgeous cover, but I was also in the mood for second chance romances. In fact I've been in a book funk waiting to get my hands on a copy of this. I haven't been able to read anything else until I finished it.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this book, but what I got was a hard to put down read that was exactly what I needed. The second chance element was great, the chemistry between Tate and Callie was good. However, and more importantly, their friendship was well crafted and believable. I loved all of the little stories from their childhood. They added an authenticity to their relationship and made me fall in love with them. It was easy to see the bond between them despite the years apart and I thought the pacing of the relationship was good.

Similarly, the plot was also interesting and kept me hooked. I will admit some of the back story and side issues weren't completely tied up. I felt the author just let the secondary characters fade out without an explanation and could have given a more satisfactory resolution to those parts of the book, but the main plot was good. I'm still not sure what a smokejumper is since living in the UK big wild fires aren't common, but it was definitely a new and intriguing concept to me that made Tate all the more loveable.

Overall, a great read I thoroughly enjoyed. I couldn't put it down and I'll definitely look out for more by this author.
